3/8: day light scene of apparent jubilation, one man, BBC 'Messengers from Moscow', 1994
one man, face near camera, waving one arm in the air, looking happy with a small crowd of men behind him paying no attention

Not quite how it seems?

Viewed at normal speed, a sequence of a few seconds from a 1994 BBC documentary gives the impression of a jubilant crowd but more careful inspection and freezing frames shows that only four people are waving and jumping up and down and generally looking jubilant. Caught in this frame, the people in the background are paying no attention and do not look particularly happy.
